KENNETH WESTHUES
Professor Emeritus
University of Waterloo, Canada

Updated with quotes for January 2019:

Classic:
Yet I have visited an elevation whence death appeared a blessing
an end result proportioning today
a levelling that makes the whole world kin.
— Harold Fallding, "Mortality," in his Complete Poems to 2005.

 

Direct:
It is only at those limits, in the mysteries of birth and death, that our fundamental commonality is dramatized and held out as a dream to strive for. We humans are not of equal strength. We are of equal weakness.
First Sociology, 1982, p. 317.

Garden moment for January 2019:

While many species of palm tree grow throughout Florida and even farther north, coconut palms flourish only on the southern end of the peninsula. This one is in Key West.
